I am afraid I am going to need more assistance from you on this. I do not know how to upload .txt format. Never had to do anything like this before. I don't know what to do from here at all. I want to get this derived.

If you're on a Mac, use TextEdit, which is in your Applications folder. Open the app, click the Format menu, and choose "Make Plain Text". When you save the file, it will be in .txt format. Then follow the steps above to upload and submit.

If you're on a PC, use Notepad. On XP, Start > Run, type Notepad into the box, and files save in .txt by default. On Vista/7, hit the Start button and type Notepad into the box.

Thanks, looks good now! It's always been a requirement, but oftentimes the system can auto-generate one if you put enough information in the "Description" field. In this case, since there was no track listing, it failed the task.

We always recommend creating your own because the system-generated .txt files are mediocre at best.
